Bifold doors being folded down to open out a living areaBi-fold doors offer the most amazing views to the outside and really are the best option for bringing the outside in, yet many people have lots of questions about them.

We have been installing bi-fold doors in Essex & the surrounding areas for some time now and would like to share the answers to some of the most frequently asked questions.

What are bi-fold doors?

Bi-fold doors are often used to connect rooms to an outdoor area such as a patio, decking or conservatory.  A bi-fold door consists of multiple hinged panels of glass with rollers allowing them to fold in a concertina fashion, leaving a large bright and airy opening to your wonderful garden and views.

What about keeping the heat in during winter?

Our designs usually feature a traffic door that will allow you to move through without having to push back all the panels. This will help you keep the heat in during the colder months, while the much larger opening will help keep your house cool on those hot summer days.

Are bifold doors safe and secure?

Bifold doors can be very secure and are often better in fact than traditional sliding doors. Our aluminium Bifold doors feature a special safety system with features such as finger safe gaskets to prevent trapping, strong magnets to hold doors in place and prevent slamming and special threshold designs for easy disabled access.

Are bifold doors only for outside?

Extension with bifoldsAbsolutely not, bi-fold doors work wonders separating internal rooms too while giving a great feeling of space by opening up the view across the rooms.

This can add great flexibility to your options in your home, allowing you to open up two rooms into a great open plan living space, which is particularly great when entertaining.
